Trash land
For some living in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, making a living from other people’s waste is their only means of survival.


Portuguese photographer Jose Ferreira traveled to the Huléne garbage dump, not far from the city’s airport, and captured the harsh reality of life in this “trash land.”


Ferreira says that what struck him most was that despite the hardship, he found some of the “best people” he had ever met.

"Despite all the circumstances of how they live, they keep on showing their kindness and happiness and hospitality," he said. "We don’t find these human qualities in many places in the world."

Ferreira explains that he met two types of people in the dump: the homeless and the “garbage collectors.” “Many of them living there depend on trash to survive, some search for food, others for types of recycling materials to sell to the factories,” he said.
